The 207m all-suite vessel will be the first ultra-luxury yacht of its kind.
Luxury yacht and cruise ship designer Tillberg Design of Sweden (TDoS) has been tapped to provide the design for the first Four Seasons Yacht. The 207m (679ft) all-suite yacht is the first of a planned fleet for the global luxury hospitality brand, Four Seasons. They intend to offer their customers an amazing luxury yacht experience. This will include exceptional land and sea travel distinguished by elevated design, craftsmanship, service, and excellence.
The enterprise is a cross-industry collaboration between Four Seasons, TDoS, luxury travel experts FS YachtCo, lifestyle curator and publisher Prosper Assouline and award-winning shipbuilder Fincantieri. It is designed to create a new category of luxury lifestyle travel. It aims to appeal to a segment within the Ultra High Net Worth community of travelers.
An experience like no other
The Four Seasons Yacht will feature 14 decks with vast indoor and outdoor private guest areas. The vessel offers nearly 50 percent more living space per guest than any competitor. Guests will be accommodated in 95 expansive and multi-level guest suites with adjoining options that allow for adaptable, villa-like residences. Each custom suite is budgeted at $4.2M to build and will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive terraces. The most spacious suite will span four decks encompassing 431 square meters (4,639 square feet). It will offer a 462sqm (4,973sqft) terrace with a private pool.
Four Seasons will lend its culinary innovation and hospitality expertise to the yacht’s restaurants, lounges, and bar concepts, as well as the full-service spa, salon, and wellness offerings. The top-of-the-line amenities will be accompanied by the attentive and personalized service that defines the Four Seasons. The yacht will feature a classic canoe-shaped stern, which will house the industry’s largest pool deck of its size on the fifth deck. It will also feature a port-to-starboard transversal “dual marina”. It will bring guests to sea level for water activities and seamless transfers to shore via the yacht’s sea limousines. Lastly, the dual marina feature can also transform into an exclusive floating dining experience.
A luxury yacht collaboration creating an unique guest experience
“We are delighted to bring our expertise in both yacht and cruise ship design to this unique and exciting project,” says TDos Partner and Executive Director Fredrik Johansson. “It is a collaboration with a brand that understands the expectations and desires of the yachting world and is dedicated to creating a guest experience that is unparalleled.”
“This project is in a class by itself, as it combines the best of ultra-luxury passenger ship construction with yacht design to create a brand new class of ultra-luxury vessels,” says Fincantieri’s Merchant Ships Division General Manager Luigi Matarazzo. “We are proud to apply our expertise in engineering, design and style to such a remarkable partnership.”
The luxury yacht is now in the design and planning stage but will soon enter its construction phase. In fact, the first Four Seasons Yacht is anticipated to set sail in late 2025. There is already a plan for a series of global itineraries. They will focus on intriguing and cohesive guest experiences led by a dedicated Four Seasons team.
